Hi Just checking first of all you have tried another memory module. This sounds like a faulty RAM. Please try and get back to me if that doesn't fix it. Thanks, Lolita

Blow the dust off the heat sinks and remove one memory card then give it a try .. replace and romove the other one.. It is likely a faulty memory card.

removethe video car and dimm memory and any other plugged in cards
leave the monitor unattached.
start the machine
if it beeps exactly as u said, the motherboard is faulty and must be replaced.
If it doesnt, or gives out a different beep pattern, turn it off, add the memory dimms ack, switch on again.
If it beeps continuously your memory is bad and you may just be able to go buy some replacements. If you have never removed/installed dimms be careful they only fit in one way around.
If the beep is absent/different to the original problem beep, turn off the macchine again and add the video card - do not attach the monitor. reboot and listen again If u have recreated the original beep that it failed on, its the video card.
This is the standard diagnostic process and can be repeated with the addition of each accessory, monitor, keyboard etc. until you find the culprit. Failed hard disks/CD's/DVD/Floppy will not give you this beep error usually. It is most likely faulty memory chips. If youo have really good manuals that came with the machine, you can look up the beep code to identify the problem as they are like morse code...the beep pattern tells u the fault.
Hope u can resolve it yourself and save some cash!

Power Supply. Weak voltage power rail.
Has enough power to light LED lights, maybe spin fans, (Or spin a few times, and stop), but not enough power to turn the Processor on.
1) ALL of the LED lights combined use less than 1 Watt of power.
2) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts of power.
3) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts of power.
Depends on what Processor it is.
Acer Aspire M1641-U1521A?
Intel Pentium Dual Core E2180 (2.0GHz)
Can use up to 65 Watts. (TDP)
The Power Supply used is a 250 Watt unit. Acer isn't known to use high quality power supply's. It's a generic low quality Power Supply.
[ However in all fairness to Acer, if the inside of the computer, AND the inside of the Power Supply, isn't cleaned out on a regular basis as needed, this can cause Power Supply failure also.
Use a can of compressed air for computers, with the plastic 'straw' attached. Hold onto the can with one hand, use the other hand to hold onto the straw, shoot air through the ventilation holes of the Power Supply's case. (Computer unplugged from power)
Come around to the back of the computer, use the air to clean the Power Supply's fan blades, center hub, and surrounding cage. (Shroud)
When the cooling components for the Power Supply, (Fan and Heatsinks used inside), become clogged with dust, dirt, etc., the cooling capacity drops tremendously.
The Power Supply overheats.
Heat = Wasted Energy
The Power Supply strains to keep up with the call for power, but eventually cannot, and fails.
Components inside the Power Supply fail ]
Replace the Power Supply.
